Someone actually though this rape shirt was a good idea 

This comes straight from the “What Were They Thinking?” file. A T-shirt that mocked rape has been pulled from shelves after it sparked outrage online.
The shirt, which is dark blue and bears the slogan “It’s not rape, it’s a snuggle with a struggle,” was spotted in the teen boys section of a shop in a SM Supermalls franchise, the largest mall operator in the Phillippines.

friendly reminder that the first usage of singular they cited in the OED is in 1526
friendly reminder that Shakespeare, Austen, Thackeray, and Shaw all used singular they
friendly reminder that “his or her” constructions exclude many trans individuals
friendly reminder that if you argue that singular they is “grammatically incorrect”, you are putting adherence to an arbitrary system of rules higher than the wellbeing of actual humans

if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
